Summer 2014, Roanne, France.
Bel Maille textile factory has become the set of a film The Boss’ Daughter, a romantic and social comedy.
The workers there -knitters of the factory- are acting in the film, playing their own part under the eyes of filmmaker Olivier Loustau.
Simultaneous reflection and parallels!
While the filmmaker is filming a factory threatened to close down, the factory faces a receivership at the same time. The working reality catches on with the fiction.
I follow this true cinema and workers story until the definitive closing of the factory.
Behind closed-door, in this almost exclusively masculine atmosphere, I write, with the knitters, a workers and cinematographic tale, that is, after all, not quite common.
